Hello and welcome to another challenge here at Cards in Envy!  This time we are looking for CARDS that depict FUN IN THE SUN--create cards that feature all things you love to do in the sun!  We are looking forward to seeing different SUMMER type cards.  Remember your card must be A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") AND flat enough to be mailed in an envelope. No lumpy, bumpy embellishments such as thick buttons, thick bows or thick bulky flowers, roses or rosettes.

Our designers have come up with an assortment of CARDS that show what they like to do for FUN IN THE SUN! Please click on the links for their blogs and visit their blog post for each card for more details.  Leave them comments to let them know you were there.
